I've had apples on the brain the past few days. Daniel and I made plans to go visit some friends who recently moved from San Francisco to Auburn in a few weeks and I've been thinking that we may be forced to go check out Apple Hill. I've never been apple picking; nor have I ever eaten a cider donut. Given that life is short, I figure I should probably try to remedy this situation sooner rather than later. I also need an excuse to make this cake ASAP and I think that having a big pile of freshly picked apples around would definitely help with that.
